Update

Seamus seems to be doing okay. He hasn't had any more weird problems with his g-tube. I think removing his old one and reinserting a new one helped because it's now in the correct position, that is actually in his stomach. But something is still not right. It's not one thing, but just overall, I have a feeling something is wrong.

He's vomited only once since Sunday and he isn't complaining of pain but he's just not himself. He seems tired and doesn't want to leave the house. He actually cried and begged not to go to soccer class yesterday, which is not like him at all. Pooping still hurts, he's back to being constipated and he has hardly eaten anything in days.

I just hate this. There's not much the doctor can do just looking at him and his symptoms aren't bad enough to go to the ER, yet. They say if he's in pain to take him in but Seamus is so used to pain, he just never complains. So we wait...

The worst part of Cf I often find is knowing there is something wrong, nut not being 'sick' enough to head to the ER. It's been a life long struggle for me. Trying to avoid the ER, knowing when to bite the bullet and go, and knowing when you're just not sick enough.
I feel for you, and hope that you guys are able to come to some sort of a conclusion about his G-Tube soon. You are such a good mom to him!! xoxo
